They were gifted the Begin Again Alphabites A-Z Puzzle + Food Playset from Rockpretty Kids, an online Canadian company that sells Modern, Unique and Eco Chic Products for Kids Age 3 – 8 years old. Initially, I planned on saving the present for their birthday next month but once they caught sight of it there was no turning back. I decided to run an experiment and not tell them anything about the product and just watch to see what two five-year olds would do with it.
Grows with Your Child
For the first 30 minutes, The Kids created culinary delights using the kitchen foods and tray that also doubled as an oven top. I had eggs, bacon and juice for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch. Then, things got interesting as they started to count the items and then stack them into tall buildings and spell out the words and, you get my drift. Once it was time to clean-up, they realized that it was also a puzzle and so began the challenge of figuring out how all the pieces fit together. Rinse and repeat. Several times.
Besides the reasons already listed above, there were other ways to educate The Kids about the world around them. After Artemis served me a tray of goodies including, a donut, cookie and ice cream (she’s got a real sweet tooth), we talked about balanced meals, the different food groups and even different ways that we could sort the 27 pieces (by colour, shape and size, etc). This product is recommended for age 3+ and I can see it being incorporated into The Kids play for years to come.
Quality and Socially Responsible Materials
Based on the quality of the products that Rockpretty Kids sells, you can tell that they want to offer well made and robust products that will outlive the child. This product is a perfect example of that. There aren’t any pieces that can break (excluding the tray) and it’s made from sustainably harvested rubberwood with child safe finishes. It also meets EN, ASTM and CPSIA standards. I am very impressed with this product and can’t wait to see what creative ideas The Kids come up with next.
